Custom Dreamcast Is A Tribute To One Of Its Most Iconic Games

Belgian graphic artist Vadu Amka redesigned a Sega Dreamcast, turning it into a memento of one of the most iconic games for the system: Skies of Arcadia.

The main idea was to make the system look like a heavily damaged spacecraft. Just like something from the classic, Jules Verne-inspired JRPG.

I used lime wood I previously cut with a rotating cutter (called a dremel) for the hood. All the wood's imperfections were first resealed with some light colour wood paste, then sanded stained with mahogany stain. After that, I painted it with a blue and grey colour before sanding it one more time to give it a more degraded and aged look. I waxed the hood and made it waterproof. I put inside a small grid, oxidizing it with ocher pigment called « natural earth shade » (synthetic iron oxyde). All the rest is an optical illusion made from several black and brown juices. What seems to be metal ring is, in fact, a leather band treated and painted with oxyde paint. I used the same pattern for the gamepads slots. I finally reproduced the logo with plexiglass and remolded it with some 2-component silicone slim before moulding it in resin and painting it.

    But a 'rotating cutter' isn't called a dremel. It's called a rotary tool. Dremel is just a brand :(

      Correct, but when was the last time you heard someone forego saying "Band-Aid" when they meant an adhesive bandage?

        Frequently, actually. Well, as frequently as one can when it comes to adhesive bandages.

          Wow, that's amazing, I've never once heard someone say adhesive bandage when they needed one, it's always been Band-Aid.

    Or in Europe...hoover, as opposed to saying vacuum cleaner
